All 15 nicknames for Miami Heat jerseys


The Miami Heat are going to wear nicknames on the back of the jersey during Friday’s nationally televised game in Brooklyn. They finally released the full list of nick names for all the players ahead of the game. They had to take into consideration trademark concerns which prevented some really cool nicknames from being on the back. Instead of Dwyane Wade’s jersey saying “Flash” it says “D.Wade.” Obviously the Flash is a famous superhero. It makes you wonder how Chris Andersen got away with the Birdman though, you’d think the rapper Birdman would have that on lock down.

Ray Allen: “J. Shuttlesworth

Chris Andersen: “Birdman

Joel Anthony: “Doc

Shane Battier: “Battle

Michael Beasley: “B Easy

Chris Bosh: “CB

Mario Chalmers: “Rio

Norris Cole: “Cole Train
